Peace Tree Day Introduction

Peace Tree Day is an annual festival for children and families of every culture and faith to celebrate peace, diversity and fusion through the arts!

Children around the world are creating Peace Trees that highlight symbols from all our cultures and faiths on one tree to reflect the beauty of 'diversity in unity'.

Peace Tree Day, which takes place on June 1st every year, is celebrated in cities, organizations, classrooms, homes and through school boards. The festival inspires children to take pride in their heritage and to share it with others, while also discovering the vibrant cultures, traditions and festivals arounds the world. It is also a time to encourage young people to share their talents and develop compassion for others. Students from diverse backgrounds will work together by combining elements from different cultures, to create new forms of art, which will help raise funds to assist underprivileged children around the globe. Peace Tree Day will inspire young people to contribute to society while they explore and celebrate the beauty of every culture and faith to create peace in our world.

Peace Tree Stand--June 2nd

On Saturday June 2, 2007, a group of pre-schoolers and kindergarten students set up a Peace Tree Stand and sold drinks and treats from different cultures in order to raise funds for Free the Children. A group of Gr. 7 students worked with the little children to share workshops that reflected peace and diversity. They were able to raise $500 with which they were able to buy 5 goats and medical supplies for children and families in the war-torn area of Sierra Leone. The children were delighted to be able to help other children around the world to have a better life and future. Find out how you can help too. Visit http://www.freethechildren.org/.
